Kingdom of Fear

Posted to What Are You Reading?

Hunter S. Thompson's latest. Only up to page 50 so far, but it's already quite a ride. HST is now in his mid-60's, but he hasn't mellowed with age......still the wild man of gonzo! Amazing that the guy has survived, given the lifestyle, but then Bill Burroughs still reached old age despite similarly abusing his body. As Dylan Thomas wrote: "rage, rage against the dying of the light".
